done by a john mccain republican surrogate named mitt romney. >> inside a campaign, what do you get on the inside that we don't get on the outside because you're doing your own polling? >> you see the widest array of polls. you look at mason dixon that cake out yesterday. you take that apart, it's close to the internal polls. it shows that john mccain is leading in the states that he's got to lead in. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we have a good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada, that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. we're excited. we're hoping to see a lot of people out there in chicago on election night with barack obama experiencing a long, cold night, that john mccain won. >> it's nice he wishes physical discomfort on his enemies. but notice what exactly he was so confidently predicting there. the day before the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his predictions for states that john mccain was definitely going to win. >> john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we t
. thank you. [cheers and applause] >> now, last time i was in pensacola, i was here with senator john mccain. and as i drove in today it was good to see the city seems to be doing very, very well. appreciate, mayor, your introduction today, and i know john mccain was worried. he was afraid when he left flight school that the liquid hospitality business would totally collapse, but apparently -- they used to do pretty well. you know, all across america, people are paying a great deal of attention to this race. they recognize this is a critical time for the country. we face big challenges. we have big opportunities. and i know this is a big election. so the crowds are large, and people are paying very close attention. four years ago, then candidate barack obama, spoke about big things. but now he is reduced to talking about small things. he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. and so he is speaking about characters on sesame street, and silly word games, and attacks on me. look, attacking me is not an agenda for the future and that's why we're replacing him. [cheering] >> you know, his
play you something that john mccain said today. he was in ohio supporting the gop senate candidate but said very nasty words about the president and the 9/11 libya attack. take a listen to this. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up concealing from the american people or is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. >> karen, like many of us, we respect mr. mccain's service to this nation both politically and militarily, but is it really appropriate on a day like this to start giving a commentary about the president of the united states in those tones? >> and also it's just very disappointing, martin. i think this is the complete political transformation of john mccain that we've seen. i used -- like you, i have had great respect for john mccain and he knows as well as anyone, and condoleezza rice herself went out and made the point in terms of the things that happened in benghazi and that information was changesiing, th that's what's happening. you have to gather all of the information and try to put togethe
that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince gallia county and loudoun county -- prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots
. in 2008, president obama beat john mccain. it says: >> cenk: so, apparently getting their clock cleaned in florida. does that make a big difference? >> it does. 2.8 million absentee ballots have been ordered in florida. 1.6 million have already been returned. there were only 2.2 million in florida ordered in 2008. it's a big difference percentage-wise. the fact that they're worried about it is important. follow what these people are saying constantly. when you see an internal memo saying their clocks are getting cleaned, their clocks are getting cleaned. >> cenk: if romney is trailing in florida or even close romney again in big big big trouble because he needs florida absolutely positively. all right, michael shure thanks so much for joining us. we really appreciate it. how much trouble is mitt romney in? we sent ben down davis to talk to the odds makers and how certain are they if they are at all that president obama's going to win. ben reports fromvasion when we return. >> you can't pick a winner? >> i would lose that bet. >> cenk: we'll tell you about ohio and of course, the elbow o
, and arizona senator john mccain. live friday at 7:30 eastern on c-span. also on friday, penn state univ. roddy -- rodney erickson talks about presiding over the university as they deal with the jerry sandusky sex scandal. that is live at 1:00 p.m. eastern. >> a few minutes ago, i called a vice president bush and congratulated him on his victory. i know i speak for all of you and all the american people when i say that he will be our president and we will work with him. this nation faces major challenges ahead and we must work together. >> i have received a telephone call from governor dukakis. [applause] i want you to know he was most gracious. his call was personal. it was genuinely friendly and was in the great tradition of american politics. [applause] >> this weekend on american history tv, 20 years of presidential victory and concession speeches. what sunday at 7:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >> a look at the role virginia is planning as a battleground state in the elections. we hear from the director of the university of virginia center for politics. this is 30 minutes. host: all week lon
servants warrant that action. john mccain blames the pentagon for not being ready to help the americans in peril. he calls it a lack of leadership. >> they were not prepared. there was no alert of any kind that would have enabled them to reach a state of readiness this that they could have intervened. >> leon panetta has said that military leaders didn't have enough information what was going on the ground and could not, therefore, quote, put forces at risk in that situation. gregg? >> gregg: molly henneberg, thanks very much. >> jamie: let's get more on this from former air force vice chief of staff. a fox news military analyst. general, it's a privilege to have you here, sir. leon panetta says we're doing a lot of monday morning quarterbacking. given all the assets we have elsewhere around the world. it does seem worthwhile to ask you what should have happened and when and what do you believe went wrong? >> the secretary of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit
, including our u.s. ambassador, christopher stevens, were killed. republican arizona senator john mccain saying this is quote, now the worst coverup e life, end quote. seen in the senator now calling on the white house to declassify and release surveillance video from benghazi. meanwhile, democrats argue the terrorist attack on the consulate is being politicized. >> now we know that there were tapes, recordings inside the consulate during this fight and they've gotten-- they came and the fbi finally took those and now classified as quote, top secret. why would they be top secret? >> any impartial observer who looks the at what happened in benghazi would have to say this situation's been politicized. governor romney himself realizes that his actions and his reaction was unbecoming for potential commander-in-chief and he's backed off. >> those comments and that point of view. >> harris: national security correspondent jennifer griffin has been out in front of this story from the very beginning and broke the news that urgent calls for help during the the attack from americans underfire we
either for john mccain or barack obama in 2008. one entire side of the voting population in this upcoming election is the portion of our country that lives on the edge. as we continue to cope with and rescue people from and now recover bodies from, the impact of this one storm on the most populated part of america's coastline today, the governor of new york state has been again and again trying to draw people's attention to this not being just one event, but a challenge for the whole country that events like this might now be happening with increased frequency. not just in new york, but in all of these heavily populated places, that before now had a fairly predictable relationship with the body of water, with the ocean, that they abut. what is that predictability? that balanced and expectation, developed over the past couple of centuries, and these cities on the water is now over. mostly this gets talked about in terms of the people denying that climate change is a real thing, and big talk about whether we should try to stop climate change and global warming. but that may be getting resol
? that is the exact same number that obama beat john mccain by in ohio. so what we're saying -- karl rove is saying that all the polling numbers say one thing but when push comes to shove, who is planning on voting for whom, the number goes the other way to romney. quick point on the campaigns. i'm thrilled they're back. they're both back at it. mitt romney, went into it and brought things back where they should be. they should be on the economy. we have that huge jobs number tomorrow morning. romney points out that he is all over the jobs, he is the one that creates jobs. obama went to a weird place. talking about green energy, i don't know where -- >> dana: we'll talk about that later. >> bob: can i point out -- >> dana: kimberly and greg haven't had a chance to talk. >> bob: sorry. >> dana: kimberly, karl's prediction was he believes that it will be 51-48 with romney winning, carrying at least 279 electoral college votes. your thoughts? >> kimberly: romney by 3%. i think he will go for it, he will win with 280 electoral votes. i believe he is going to take ohio by margin large enough to be conte
in pennsylvania. pennsylvania has been fool's gold for years. john mccain went there at the end of the campaign last time. george w. bush went there at the end of the campaign in 2004. in the end, i think, they can't crack ohio and because they can't crack ohio, they've got to look somewhere else. they are looking are to pennsylvania, minnesota. i don't think they are going to win either of those states. >> now, the campaign's closing argument, we keep talking about closing arguments but they sound very similar to the opening arguments. listen to this. >> i'll lead america to a better place. this is not a time for america to settle. we're four days away from a fresh start. four days away from the fresh day of a new beginning. >> america has always done best when everybody has a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules. that's what we believe. that's why you elected me in 2008 and that's why i'm running for second term as president of the united states of america. >> so we're still basically talking about fairness and about a new direction? >>
. that happened on september 11th a group of senators including senator john mccain writing to president obama asking him to stop stonewalling and tell congress and the american people what the administration knew and when they knew it. this comes as now we are learning more about internal surveillance video of the attack which apparently led to the arrest of a tunisia man, ali al-harzi, and a suspect detained in turkey days after the attack. so far u.s. interrogators have not had access to him. ambassador john bolton, former ambassador to the united nations and fox news contributor. he joins us now. the fbi took, well, the investigation into what happened at the embassy took a long time to get going. now we've got word that this guy, actually two suspects, perhaps, are under arrest but we haven't been able to talk to them yet? >> yeah. this is really outrageous and one of the follow-on consequences from the badly misguided way the obama administration has handled this entire affair, from the lack of security enhancements requested in libya by our people before the september 11 attack, inadequ
these questions, as you know, john mccain and i sent a letter, month than two weeks ago, to secretary panetta, asking for some of these answers and we haven't heard anything and we sent another letter, yesterday, with the additional information we're hearing directly from the president about the order that he issued. why wasn't it followed? this makes no sense. >> chris: senator warner, we have a couple of minutes left and i want you and senator johnson to also weigh in. senator warner, you know, a skeptic would say, you know, yes, this investigation is going to happen after election day. but, we won't know the facts when people have to go vote. >> well, chris, again, in a number -- as a member of the intelligence committee, what we ought not to be doing is getting into some of these issues, candidly, that -- after what senator udall said, about drone assets and, even the reports your network has issued, the administration categorically denied, i have an enormous amount of faith in the process, and we are going to take on, in the intelligence community, a look at this and i have an enormous a
we saw a real sharp contrast between john mccain and president obama, and i think people, you know, times like this you look to your leaders and see how they hnl handle crises. i think it's not just that he's a quick study. i think he's a very steady lead leader. he's proven that time and again. it is part of being an incumbent that people in a time of crisis get to see how you handle a situation like this. i think he's done a good job. he'll do a good job and that may remind people, this guy is a good guy to have in a storm or a good guy to have in a crisis. it's not just about political study though. >> it is about political study in this calculation with respect to this election, particularly what i've been hearing from the left about how this is going to be some boon or benefit for the president. i don't think the people are looking at it in those terms. i'm certainly as a political analyst don't look at it in those terms. i think the reality of it is the president has an expectation of doing his job. that was one of the shortcomings for george bush was he did not do the job as
john mccain suddenly disappeared from the campaign for about a month when someone brought up mr. adelson who was in is in jerusalem with his millions of dollars and mccain said that has nothing to do with support for israel. that money is from china. mr. adelson doesn't have anything. that is the sands corporation. does anyone remember the last time frank sinatra sang at the sands? i mean right now it's an old funky hotel. motel six doesn't have that many bed bugs and he said i was just at the sands. where does the sands get these millions in billions? the sands corporation at that little footprint, that piece of dirt in vegas but all their money is from macau, from china. you don't operate in china unless you are actually fronting for the princelings of the politburo. we know where that money has come from and we know why mr. romney, don't we? don't we? barack obama just put massive tariffs on auto parts from china and for all the china bashing that mr. romney is going to be doing tonight, take my word for it, he refused to back the tariffs on auto parts is almost all the auto
then candidate barack obama beat senator john mccain with 52% of the vote in virginia. president obama's win at that time was notable was virginia had backed republicans in every presidential election from dwight eisenhower in 1952 all the way through george w. bush in 2004 except for the lyndon johnson landslide that happened in 1964. that is your history lesson for virginia. bill: early voting is resuming in maryland, it was su suspended for two days. voters turning out in big numbers, many saying they did not want to wait until the last minute. >> it's convenient to get it done ahead of time. i can't speak for other people, but for me one less thing to do next tuesday. >> before the storm i would have said it was the storm. now i think people want to make sure they have an opportunity, you know, to get in and voice their opinion. bill: the early voting hours and days to vote extended in maryland so that may explain why we are seeing a lot of folks there voting early. martha: let's go back to a live look right now at the jersey shore. my goodness, that is the boardwalk in point pleasant wh
obama won handily against john mccain and mitt romney has not spent a great deal of time. earlier in the summerrer went to the pittsburg area, the coalfields in order to talk about the coal community that makes up so much of western pennsylvania, west virginia, eastern ohio, and it's two things, it's a recognition of the obama campaign's slippage in pennsylvania, as well as in minnesota and michigan, that the romney campaign has increased its advertis advertising and built a presence there in the last several days. it is also an opportunity to hedge against some slippage in ohio, should mr. romney not win the buckeye state, the bell weather will no republican wins the white house without wink that first he's going to need michigan and pennsylvania and that may figure into that. when you look at the ground game, surveys suggest is a lot more even than the public reports suggest, the obama campaign and romney campaign both predict they are going to within. the romney campaign does show a degree of convincing consciousness. they have reason for anxiousness. it's uncertain they have w
against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched. like one of those swords and sandals movies, though, each guy has a different weapon. they don't have the same tool kit. but one thing obama has in his tool kit, i'll go back to, is hope. you don't run for president with the name of barack hussein obama without hope. i talked to him recently at the al smith dinner, i can't say what he said, but the guy has confidence, i'll tell you that. he has confidence. something tells him he wins. i don't know what it is. it may be delusion narrary, but does have that confidence. he tells us to be hopeful, maybe this is the week he's got to have hope. like a pitcher in the seventh inning two runs back and has to put everybody out for the next three innings but has to hope the batters will come through and give him some bat. he has to hope, just like the pitcher in the seventh inning.
belts. making me nervous. >> massive cover-up or incompetence? very strong words from senator john mccain on the administration's handling on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya that killed four americans including our u.s. ambassador. mrz lawmaker calling for the immediate release of all surveillance video gathered during that deadly attack. national security correspondent jennifer griffin joins us live with the late. what requests went unanswered according to your sources? >> remember, my source was on the ground at the c.i.a. annex. i'm told about 9:40 when the first shots were heard, woods and other operators asked the c.i.a. base chief for permission to go help at the consulate. they were told to stand down, quote, stand down. base chief was in radio contact with the station chief. u.s. officials say the base chief was trying to arrange libyan help. approximately 10:30 woods and his team asked important per mission to help and they were told to stand down. at that time they disobeyed orders, they were armed and climbing walls all the way to the consulate which i was to
. it is this claim in this reporting that romney was in the room along with john mccain when they were getting the reporting. this is p as bad as we can imagine it being. it was connifusing and complicated. he, like everyone else, found it confusing and tough. more than anything, part of what i am yearning for from the republicans, katon, is the sense of complexity. it is hard work. there is not one single policy that impacts such a complex economy. >> there is not one single party that is going to get it done. >> i think you just framed the election for me and a lot of other people. how big do we want our government to be? you talk about increasing jobs. how big of a government can we afford. >> if it is teachers, i would like it to be very big. >> i have my sister back home that would like that also. my point is, this is the choice america is making. how big of a government, not do we want but can which afford? that gets to a liberty versus conservative argument. policies and all this other stuff gets stuff in the weeds. do we want more government jobs? that becomes a real thing. >> you do.
population and retired veteran population as well. john mccain carried that very narrowly. it was practically a 50-50 with obama. there's no way it's going to be that close this time. but i want to see what presented president obama gets in virginia beach. if the bows out of the water, that tells me something. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not mak
